medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add ham; cook, stirring

black pepper; cook, stirring, for 1 minutes. Add broth, bay leaves,
and oregano to pan; bring ham mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to
medium-low. Stir in beans and simmer until mixture thickens slightly,
about 15 minutes. Stir in parsley and sherry. Remove bay leaves. Ladle
soup into individual bowls. Serve immediately. Variation: substitute
one can of white beans for one can of black beans. Remember: use a
slotted spoon to remove and discard the bay leaves from the soup. Bay
leaves are used exclusively for flavor - they should not be eaten.
